Grammy Award for Steve Jobs

10 years after Apple won the Technical Grammy for its contribution in the music industry, Grammy has decided to recognize the impact of iPod and iTunes on the music industry and name the former CEO and Apple founder Steve Jobs for the “outstanding contributions to the industry in a non-performing capacity” Grammy award.

No one can deny how Apple change the music industry and how the industry was revived back in the down times of music (Click here if you do not know). But it is sad to have the award given only after Steve’s death. But mostly it is always the case.

Wonder who will be collecting the award on Steve’s place.

Malaysian iPhone 4S Plans Comparison: Which is the Cheapest?

HOORAY!!!!

Tomorrow is the big day for all the iPhone lovers in Malaysia. Its the official launch of iPhone 4S in Malaysia by all the 3 telcos in Malaysia namely Maxis, Digi and Celcom. The plans are out from the telcos few days ago and we did a very simple and detailed table of comparison of all the plans available from Maxis, Digi and Celcom.

The table includes all the information needed about the plans and also the total ownership cost you will need to pay if you sign up for the particular plan.

Have a look at the table below: (click on image for a larger view)

Considering the total cost of ownership, we can see that Digi have the cheapest plans compared to Maxis and Celcom. But it is all down to personal preferance to decide with plan is best for you. And of course, these is solely based on the plans and the cost of the plans. Please do take the network, services etc into consideration before deciding which plan is the best for you!

One more thing is that Maxis is still selling the iPhone 4 in a very lucrative price where we do not see any plans regarding the iPhone 4 from Digi or Celcom.

The iPhone 4 plans from Maxis looks like this!

Do consider buying the iPhone 4 if you are tight on budget! The iPhone 4 is still an awesome phone!

Are you one of the proud soon to be iPhone 4S owner?
Which telco will you get your iPhone 4S from?

Google releases 2011 Zeitgeist list for Malaysia: Malaysian top searches in 2011

Recently, Google releases its annual Zeitgeist list for Malaysia. This list is a summary of what Malaysian searches throughout the year 2011.

We can see that tech is very important to Malaysians where iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy, iPad2 and Android are among the top 10 fastest rising searches. That is a big 4/10. We can also see that Malaysians are more interested in iPhone 5 than all Samsung Galaxy phones combined. That is just what we thought.

Many will find it unpleasing to see Justin Bieber is in the top 10 fastest rising people. Anyone of us can be a better suited candidate for that place. And it is devastating to see that Justin Bieberis the the top search for image searches. What is wrong with Malaysians?? (Sorry for all the Justin Bieber fans out there, he is great, but not this great!) Even Domo Kun lost to him? That is just impossible! 😉

The Japanese crisis and the king of pop’s funeral are also a huge interest of Malaysians. Malaysians also seem to be unclear of what is bersih, g6, lmao, jailbrake and even things like iPad and Androids. Seriously?

With 3 telco selling the iPhone 4S at launch, we expect a competitive bundled plan for iPhone 4S.
